Default Red brake calipers on C5?

Does anyone have any pics of their C5, preferably Red with 2000 chrome wheels, with the red brake calipers on them. I know the z06's look good with them, I just wanted to see what a C5 would look with them installed. Thanks guys

No, used the G2 Epoxy Paint kit. $40.00 and works great.
